Press release: "Starting 'British Mavericks' month on the show - a series of conversations with illustrators whose work is surprisingly avant-garde for mainstream comics - we have an interview with pop art surrealist Brendan McCarthy. Appropriately for Guy Fawkes' Night, Brendan's work is the comic strip equivalent of fireworks, mixing lurid colours with hallucinogenic rendering that he has managed to smuggle into British periodicals such as 2000AD and Crisis and more recently has led to work in the field of film and animation design, working on TV series such as Reboot and the new film 'Mad Max 4: Fury Road'. Today's interview was conducted by librarian and author Pedro Galvao in front of an audience of Graphic Novel fans at Minet Library in Camberwell as part of Lambeth Readers and Writers Festival during the summer.
The episode was recorded and edited by Alex Fitch."
